creat-2The 3D printers keep coming! It’s been an action packed few days, with lots of outside-the-box thinking when it comes to the new 3D printers being unveiled this week. We’ve seen new printers unveiled from Mexico, the United States, China, and now one from India. India, like we have mentioned in the past, has been lagging behind neighbor China, when it comes to embracing 3D printing. With that said, recent developments seem to point to rapid adoption of this up-and-coming technology within the world’s second most populated nation.

The Indian-based company Creator Bot, not to be confused with recent Kickstarter success CreatorBot-3D, has unveiled their first 3D printer. The machine, which is still under development, was revealed recently to an excited crowd at ‘August Fest’, which took place at the Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre. The company who has a stated mission “to help people bring their ideas into reality through digital manufacturing,” aims to make everyone’s desk an affordable microfactory.

The printer itself looks very different from what many of us are used to seeing from an FDM-based machine. It’s extremely small and light weight, but still is able to print objects of a decent size. It is built on a sturdy aluminum frame, and is engineered with simplicity and a flexible open design in mind. This makes it very easy to assemble, ‘hack’, and upgrade as new advancements come to market. Below you will find some of the basic specifications of the Creator Bot 3D printer:

  • Build Envelope: 5″ × 5″ × 5″creat-3
  • Print Resolution: 100 microns
  • Print Speed: 100mm/sec
  • Nozzle Size: 0.4mm
  • Filament Diameter: 1.75mm
  • Controller: RAMPS 1.4 (Arduino Compatible)
  • Firmware: Marlin
  • Power: 12v 5A Power adapter
  • Weight: Under 3Kgs (About 6.5 pounds)

Creator Bot aims to be India’s most affordable 3D printer, priced starting at just Rs 28,500 (Approximately $470). Those who wish to save 10% off of this price may register at their site and be one of the first to purchase a Creator Bot, once it’s launched.

This could be a major step in popularizing 3D printing within the country of India, a nation teaming with hungry young adults looking to innovate and create. Let’s hear your thoughts on this affordable new printer, which is small enough to be taken anywhere, yet large enough to print useful everyday objects. Discuss in the Creator Bot forum thread on 3DPB.com.  Below is a working prototype of the machine.
